In what is being described as one of the worst tweets in history, on Wednesday, Barack Obama sent out a tweet that used the Texas school shooting as a segue to bring up George Floyd and promote the far-left organization My Brother’s Keeper Alliance.
The tweet came after at least 19 children were killed in their classrooms by an 18-year-old man. The gunman was stopped and killed by a US Border Patrol agent.
Obama’s tweet said, “As we grieve the children of Uvalde today, we should take time to recognize that two years have passed since the murder of George Floyd under the knee of a police officer,” Obama tweeted. “His killing stays with us all to this day, especially those who loved him.”

"It sucks those kids died, but remember George Floyd? He's who I'm still thinking about." — Barack Obama

This is truly sick. 19 innocent children and 2 hero teachers were killed… and to the Divider-in-Chief, the real victim of Uvalde is George Floyd?

The families of more than 20 people (mostly children) killed yesterday do not deserve this disrespect.
It would be good to respect their pain and not use this moment to stir up more hatred.
